Our campsites are perfect for a variety of events and can
be tailored to fit the Texas Revolution Era or include our chuckwagon and have
more of a Cattle Era (1870’s) flavor. We use period style canvas tents and
furnishings to give the feel of daily pioneer life. Our characters may portray a
particular character from Texas history or may take the persona of a fictional composite
character of the day. They will dress and carry on normal activities from
the era. Visitors are welcomed to our camp and invited to, “sit a spell” and
share the day with us. We have several “hands-on” activities that visitors
can try for themselves including grinding corn, butter making, or playing with
toys and games. Visitors may also see an informal spinning or quilting
demonstration. They may even get to see and touch a selection of animal skins
that were indigenous to Texas in the 1800’s or watch the cook prepare a meal.
Stage Performances are a wonderful compliment to our
campsite. These usually take about an hour each and can be scheduled throughout
the event at either the campsite or in an auditorium-style setting. Just think
how great it would be for a fourth grader studying Texas history to see a stage
performance by Sam Houston and then visit the campsite and get to chat with him
about the issues of the day, or what games he played as a child or….
Pioneer Life-Skills and Crafts Demonstrations and Workshops may also be combined with our
campsite. These may be at specifically scheduled times or ongoing during the
event. We can conduct them at the campsite or in specially designated areas.
